This is a personal blog updated regularly by Dr. Daniel Reed, Vice President for Research and Economic Development at the University of Iowa.
These musing on the current and future state of technology, scientific research and innovation are my own and don’t necessarily represent the University of Iowa's positions, strategies or opinions.
In an earlier blog posting, I mentioned that I was on my way to western China, to give a keynote talk at GCC2007 in Urumchi, which is in northwest China. I’ve been many places in central and eastern China (Beijing, Xian, Guangzhou, Guilin), but I had never been to western China or Tibet.
I write a quarterly column for the Computing Research Association (CRA)'s newsletter, Computing Research News (CRN). This column muses on computing research, education, federal research funding and a variety of other issues that catch my fancy. I hope some of these are of broader interest.
